Let Me love Me More

Sometimes I try hard
to show you love
and in your pain
of un-forgiveness you
move away
Sometimes I try hard
to love you
and you keep silent
without a word
you laugh out loud
and I don’t know what
to think in your laughter
Sometimes I try hard
to please you and you hang
your head so low
burying yourself in
modern cell as you ignore
my presence
Sometimes I try hard
to love you
and I say to myself
I am finish trying, I can’t
do this anymore
“Please God,
Let me love me more.”

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
